Storyline

Laid is a series about sex. Sex and death. Death and valour. Life and love. For Roo, it's hard enough just trying to work out who she is and what it's all about without being dragged back to her chequered bedroom past to protect her exes - and preserve her chance at true love.

The Office meets Ally McBeal with a sex drive
18 March 2011 | by mcravenerSee all my reviews

A first review of this Australian series, which I feel deserves some attention after seeing the first episode: "Laid" is situated in an environment something like The Office, but with more of a protagonist focus. The series is about Roo, a 29 year old single girl who works at a product marketing firm, desperately searching for Mr Right and the situations she finds herself in by doing so.

Roo is an offbeat kind of person, never quite fitting in at work, never quite sure if what she says is totally off the wall or if it is the current acceptable way of thinking.

The humor is very on the mark and quite racy compared to the more normative and streamlined US TV series, and the main character Roo (Alison Bell) comes off as both real and also very funny.

So hoping that the series keeps its format...

8/10
